I know that many of you that visit this blog are concerned with the imbeciles now running the show in Washington...most especially with the retards that Obama has installed as "Czars" over darned near everything.

I got a computer letter from Pea Green (Cowdad's baby brother) that illustrates the enormous challenges that sensible Americans face in dealing with BozoBama and his crew.

From a senior level Chrysler person: Monday morning I attended a breakfast meeting where the speaker/guest was David E. Cole, Chairman of the Center for Automotive Research (CAR), an Engineer with 40+ years automotive experience, full Professor at the Univ. of Michigan.

You have all likely heard CAR quoted, or referred to in the auto industry news lately. Mr. Cole told many stories of the difficulty of working with the folks that the Obama administration has sent to save the auto industry.

There have been many meetings where this very experienced automotive expert has to listen to a newcomer to the industry; someone with zero manufacturing experience, zero auto industry experience, zero business experience, zero finance experience, zero engineering experience, and apparently zero brains tell them how to run their business.

Mr. Cole's favorite story is as follows: There was a team of Obama people speaking to Mr. Cole. They were explaining to Mr. Cole that the auto companies needed to make a car that was electric and liquid natural gas (LNG) with enough combined fuel to go 500 miles, so we wouldn't "need" so many gas stations (A whole other topic). They were quoting BTU's of LNG and battery life they had looked up on some website.

Mr. Cole explained that to do this you would need a trunk FULL of batteries, and a LNG tank as big as a car to make that happen. And that there were problems related to the laws of physics that prevented them from...

The Obama person interrupted and said (and I am quoting here) "These laws of physics? Whose rules are those? We need to change that. (Some of the others wrote down the law name so they could look it up). We have the Congress, and the administration. We can repeal that law, amend it, or use an executive order to get rid of that problem. That's why we are here, to fix these sort of issues."

My friends...we are screwed...


  1. Well HELL! Let's just repeal those damn laws of physics. OH NOES!!!!

  2. Who the heck is this guy Physics and who let him make up laws anyway? Bah!

  3. I was discussing this with The Mrs. this afternoon.

    As a preface, she is a stinkin' genius when it comes to science and junk...she aced Physics, Chemistry, and Home Economics.

    She gave me the full breakdown about the laws of physics...inertia, motion, and a bunch of other junk that I didn't understand.

    But all in all, she was in agreement with the engineer dude...

    "Obama, and his appointees suck...and we are screwed."

  4. Andy, I am sorry that you are married to a RACIST!!!!!

  5. A prius can travel 500 miles on about 36 litres of petrol. Assuming it was possible to convert one to LPG and the lower density fuel meant that fuel consumption was increased by 50% that would still only be 54 litres of LPG per 500 miles. Is LNG so much less efficient than LPG that it would take substantially more fuel to travel that distance? Or is the problem in adapting hybrid systems to gas powered engines? Building a mid size car with a briefcase size battery and a 60 litre gas tank instead of 45 litre petrol tank should be a piece of piss.

  6. Debunked on Snopes. You need to check your sources a little better.

  7. Anonymous & Cheburashka...Jeepers! Give me a stinkin' break! It's a JOKE...

    Anonymous, only cowardly jackasses comment anonymously. "Man Up," would ya?

    Cheburashaka, this is NOT a serious blog (usually), nor a commercial news outlet, so checking sources is not our job. It's a stinkin' joke. Okay, let's do this...

    I'll post this:

    Roe vs. Wade

    Q: What's George Bush's position on Roe v. Wade?

    A: He really doesn't care how people get out of New Orleans.

    Happy now? Jeepers...get a life...

  8. George Bush hates black people.

  9. Anonymous: Obviously Bush hates negroes! Bastard...

    I had forgotten a few blog rules I learned a while back.

    Rule #1: Never feed a troll.

    Rule #2: Exclude "anonymous" comments, because "anonymous commentors" usually live in their parent's basement...only coming up to eat breakfast at 5 pm, or to take the transport bus to physical therapy.

    Rule #3: Shoulda' done this a long time ago.

    Have a lovely morning Anon...Jesus loves you, and so do I. He just has WAY MORE patience than I do.

  10. "George Bush hates black people." Who the HELL doesn't?

    Oh, wait.

  11. This comment has been removed by the author.

  12. People who don't have blogger accounts or forget their passwords also make anonymous comments. Putting a name on this comment isn't any less cowardly than posting anonymously, you still don't know who I am, it doesn't make me more manly and it certainly doesn't make me less of a jackass. I will concede that posting anonymously is lazy and can cause confusion (I'm the prius anonymous, not the racist George Bush anonymous).
    As for this story being a joke, that's a given, but my point is that it doesn't work well as a joke if by the time the reader gets to the punch line they are still wondering why a long range LNG/electric vehicle is physically impossible. Perhaps your genius wife could explain it to me so that I can appreciate the joke as much as you do.

  13. Ford, as long as government is involved, ZERO innovation and invention shall happen. Kinda like what happens in the medicinal department. IF we had relied upon government back in the 1870s and 1880s to string telegraph lines, we would still be minus the transcontinental railroad.

    By the way, I was the Bush hates Black People anony. It was a JOKE Ford.

  14. TD: I shoulda knowed...sigh.

    Of course the reason that I didn't respond to the Bush hates black folks deal is because he does.

    I gotta quit messing around and get to work...time's a waisting!

  15. "as long as government is involved, ZERO innovation and invention shall happen" - another reason the premise for this joke doesn't ring true, we have the bureaucrat character asking for innovation and the industry expert character dismissing it.

  16. ford, can you name a single thing that government does well other than make things twice as expensive?

    Try to justify the cost of 1138 dollars a square foot for the new visitor's center at the Capitol, if you will. It was only 500,000 square feet. I'm all ears and knowledge thirsty.

  17. I think you misunderstood me Two Dogs, I'm not defending the government. I'm saying that if we accept the idea that private enterprise drives innovation and government stifles it, then a joke which has a set-up which relies on the idea of government being more innovative than industry has a problematic premise.

  18. Bwahaha...

    1.) Andy posts some random story that he is just sure "illustrates the enormous challenges that sensible Americans face in dealing with BozoBama and his crew" and announces that "we are screwed."

    2.) A couple people point out that the story is fictionalized.

    3.) Andy backpedals and flips out about how it was all really a joke and we don't check sources here and JEEZE MANUPAND GETALIFE!

    The internets is funnay sometimes...

  19. Alex, that really is "funnay!" ???

  20. Methinks that the "Alex" above must the one that Letterman wants to rape Sarah Palin's kids in New York.

  21. Okay, Okay, Okay...I've been had. UNCLE!!!

    "Funnay" is just way too gay a term to use. I imagine that this Alex would rather do it with Todd than Bristol.
